So I happened upon this information awhile back while on imdb.com and my childhood memories and feelings clashed together with such glee and horror that there really isn’t a word in the english language to describe it.
The voice actor who portrays Optimus Prime has been voicing this character since the original cartoon aired in 1984. Peter Cullen has been in voice acting for ages, it seems, and most of us grew up hearing his voice again and again. We heard him in Votron, My Little Ponies, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe, The Real Ghostbusters, Duck Tales, Rainbow Brite, and many more.
It was a regular day of watching shows with my sons when I heard this voice again… only this time is was coming out of EEYORE! Apparently Peter Cullen has been portraying Eeyore almost as long as Optimus Prime but I had never noticed. I admittedly didn’t watch much Transformers but the voice of Optimus Prime stays with you. I also admit that I DID watch a lot of Winnie the Pooh growing up, but I never made the connection.
My world was officially blown. Here are two characters that couldn’t be more opposed to each other. Eeyore is like Optimus’ ANTITHESIS!
Well, it just goes to show that Peter Cullen is amazing. He is able to instill the greatest amount of hope and strength in his characters and the greatest amount of sympathy. Here’s to you Mr. Cullen. Thank you for giving me a very rich childhood!

So I really wanted to try these new nail polishes I got before Christmas but I wasn’t able to get them done before the big day. Fortunately, all the stuff for the kids got done. So I consider these my Christmas New Years Nails!
I used Pure Ice gold glitter for the glitter nail… only $1.99! And it looks fabulous. I read a lot about loose glitter and how it doesn’t last but a few days. I also read that it will fall off or become a gloopy mess if you try to put a top coat on it. I wanted mine to last more than a couple days, so I waited an hour and put a coat of Seche Vite on top. It neither came off or became gloopy. In fact, it came out perfectly. I think I’ll try this on all my nails next time!
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode aired worldwide this past Saturday, November 23, 2013. It was EPIC! I watched it with my Bestie, Machie right before we left to catch Catching Fire at the theater. I was still completely high from the experience, when Monday rolled around and all our Geek buds saw it again in 3D! It was like being at SDCC again… So many Cosplays and young people there. I am always to thankful to see the young teenagers enjoying the show because it gives me hope that the show will keep on going <3
Anyway, these are the nails I painted for the showing. It’s a history of the Daleks. My favorite versions of the most feared and ruthless killing machines. Hope you all enjoyed the 50th as much as I did!
